I have a Panasonic/Lumix GX1 body with only one lens - the 20 mm 1.7. That lens has been ok but, truth be told, I haven't been blown away by the quality of pictures I am getting. What lens would you recommend I buy? [more inside]

I need a lens for low-light, hand-held, food photography on my Canon 40D. I will be renting the lens so cost is not an issue and prefer only one lens instead of swapping them out. I will be taking pictures in restaurants during actual meals so dishes must be fully framed from the seated position. No tripod, no flashes, no standing up, no trickery. What would you recommend?

Sigma 18-125mm f/3.8-5.6 AF DC OS HSM vs. Canon EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM, besides the obvious zoom range differences is the Canon really worth twice the Sigma? I've checked a number of reviews and it doesn't look like the Canon's advantage is as clear cut as the price would suggest.

Photofilter: Which lens should I buy? I'm in the market for a new prime. I've narrowed it down (for various reasons) to either Canon 85/1.8 or the new Sigma 50/1.4. Do any fellow photogs out there have experience with either one or have a recommendation. Eventually, I want to go with the 85/1.2II but it'll be awhile before I have the cash. I'm looking for something with good bokeh as I like to shoot wide open and get short DOF. Currently, I'm using an old OM Zuiko 50/1.4 to achieve that but since it's not autofocus, I miss more in-focus shots than I like. In case you need to know to answer I shoot on a 30D and a 5D. Thanks!

What's your favorite Nikon-compatible macro lens? I'm completely new to macro photography (and still pretty new to photography in general, having purchased my first DSLR a little over a year ago), and I'm leaning towards the Nikon 60mm f/2.8D AF, largely because of the price differential between this and some of the other Nikkor macros. Anyone have any great experience with some of the makeshift macro lenses (using extension tubes, reversing rings, etc)?
